If you’ve ever attended the Coachella Music Festival you’ll know what I’m about to talk about. At some point during the three day event, it happens. The body just shuts down for about an hour and there’s nothing you can do about it, it just shuts down. You can’t control it, first you think if I sit down for just a minute I’ll be fine, and then it hits you, one solid hour of nighty night. The crazy thing is it could happen anywhere, any time, or any day. It could happen in the beer garden, during a Grimes show, or even during Arcade Fire’s headlining extravaganza. You’re stepped on, kicked, laughed at, and photographed, but there’s nothing you can do, you’re dead to the world. Once you wake up you’re good to go with whatever’s left of the weekend.
When I think about Bat For Lashes I think about falling asleep. I think about missing the whole damn show because the music is so boring. This will be Bat For Lashes second appearance at the fest, she played the Mojave in 2013.
